Donald Trump denies he knew about lawyer paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000

President Donald Trump spoke to reporters for the first time about the payment,he denied knowing about a $130,000 payment his lawyer made to Stephanie Clifford, a former porn star.

The President in his defence, insisted that he did not pay her $130,000 hush money.

Trump offered a flat “no” when asked if he knew about the payment that was made by his lawyer shortly before the 2016 election.he said Thursday he did not know where his personal attorney Michael Cohen got the money.

Trump’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen has admitted to making the payment, but has not indicated why he made it.
Asked why his attorney, Michael Cohen, had made the payment, the president responded: “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael.” The Wall Street Journal report.

Ms. Clifford’s lawyer, said in a tweet: “We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump’s feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment as stated on Air Force One. As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath.”

He has accused Daniels of breaching a non disclosure agreement.

Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Trump’s admission that he did not know about the agreement bolstered his client’s case to be released from the deal.

In an interview that aired a few days ago, Daniels told CBS’s “60 Minutes” programme that she and Trump had sexual relations only once, but he had kept in touch with her. She said she was not attracted to Trump, who was 60 at the time. Daniels was 27 in 2006.

Last month, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Cohen to try to get released from a nondisclosure agreement she signed in October 2016.

Lawyers for Mr. Trump and a company Mr. Cohen used to pay Ms. Clifford have said in court filings that Ms. Clifford could be liable for more than $20 million in damages for breaching the nondisclosure agreement.
